I was with like-minded healthcare professionals, and I actually felt that they knew what I was going through. The Caduceus Recovery Group has been instrumental in my recovery. I would recommend this group to anyone struggling and in need of direction.

Our group leaders are addiction specialists.

Our Caduceus Recovery Groups at Focus Mental Wellness are not doctor-led or based on Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. Weekly groups of 10 to 15 members are facilitated by certified addiction counsellors who draw on past experience leading groups to appropriately challenge relapse behaviour and support healthy new behaviour. As they are small groups, more time is available for helpful discussion. No matter how difficult life and work stress may be, our compassionate addiction counsellors and your peers are there to help.

If you are registered in the Physician Health Program (PHP) in Ontario that includes physicians, residents and medical students, the Ontario Pharmacy Health Program (OPHP) or another health program, you can choose from one of our three 90-minute groups. As part of the Health Care Professionals Program at Focus Mental Wellness, one-to-one mental health counselling, couples and family counselling are available. Our coordinator will provide quarterly Spectrum compliance reporting if requested. Our goal is to help you navigate a mandatory health program and improve you and your family’s mental wellness.


I met some excellent nurses. Listening to their words of wisdom and learning about their personal and professional struggles makes me feel more connected. I, too, began to share aspects of my personal journey
